BBC NEWS | England | Mobiles 999 contact idea spreads

ICE or in case of Emergency was the idea of East Anglian Ambulance Service paramedic Bob Brotchie. Users are encouraged to store an entries called ICE. If one than one entry is required just start the entry with ICE followed by an name i.e. ICE mum, or ICE steve.

Hopefully most people will have lock codes on their phones, but these can be overridden if you know how. If the phone hasn't been turned off, generally the address book can still be accessed.

It's a reasonable idea as most people will carry a mobile with them wherever they are and it could help identify people or at least allow the Emergency services to contact someone to let them know how the person is, not just in the case of terrorist attacks.
